Friends or Whatever - Friends or Whatever


Published May 25, 2010


blocSonic is quite proud to present to you the self-titled debut by Richmond, Virginia artist Friends or Whatever. With its fusion of shimmering electronica and a raw rock vibe, FoW proves to be a very engaging listen. At times quiet and contemplative… at other times beat-driven and laced with distorted guitar and melancholic vocals. All the while a bit challenging to put your finger on and yet it’s quickly familiar. It’s that very enigmatic nature that’s sure to pull you in.

On a side note, I just wanted to give a shout out to Just Plain Sounds. When I first heard early versions of some of the FoW music, I had not known that it was originally set for a JPS release. After approaching Mark Herbkersman (aka Friends or Whatever) about a blocSonic release, I found out. I have to give props to Anthony Gillison aka Just Plain Ant who was gracious enough to allow us the pleasure. So thank you once again Ant!!!

Thank YOU for downloading and listening, I hope you’ll enjoy it every bit as much as I do. Remember… as always… share it… podcast it… blog it.

Peace

Mike Gregoire

The way this singer sounds reminds me of a bigger, slightly more well know Indie act that a cousin of mine would play when we shared a rental house together over the home stereo system. I'll need to come back to fininsh this review later.
